      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   06/04/2017

      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   Depression and other mental health difficulties are common amongst people on the autistic spectrum and their carers.   People who are affected by general mental health difficulties are encouraged to receive and share information, support and advice with other forum members, though it is important to point out that this exchange of information is generally based on personal experience and opinions, and is not a substitute for professional medical help.   There is a list of sources of mental health support here: <a href="http://www.asd-forum.org.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=18801" target="_blank">Mental Health Resources link</a>   People may experience a more serious crisis with their mental health and need urgent medical assistance and advice. However well intentioned, this is not an area of support that the forum can or should be attempting to offer and we would urge members who are feeling at risk of self-harm or suicide to contact either their own GP/health centre, or if out of hours contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or to call emergency services 999.   We want to reassure members that they have our full support in offering and seeking advice and information on general mental health issues. Members asking for information in order to help a person in their care are seeking to empower both themselves and those they represent, and we would naturally welcome any such dialogue on the forum.   However, any posts which are deemed to contain inference of personal intent to self-harm and/or suicide will be removed from the forum and that person will be contacted via the pm system with advice on where to seek appropriate help.   In addition to the post being removed, if a forum member is deemed to indicate an immediate risk to themselves, and are unable to be contacted via the pm system, the moderating team will take steps to ensure that person's safety. This may involve breaking previous confidentiality agreements and/or contacting the emergency services on that person's behalf.   Sometimes posts referring to self-harm do not indicate an immediate risk, but they may contain material which others find inappropriate or distressing. This type of post will also be removed from the public forum at the moderator's/administrator's discretion, considering the forum user base as a whole.   If any member receives a PM indicating an immediate risk and is not in a position (or does not want) to intervene, they should forward the PM to the moderating team, who will deal with the disclosure in accordance with the above guidelines.   We trust all members will appreciate the reasoning behind these guidelines, and our intention to urge any member struggling with suicidal feelings to seek and receive approproiate support from trained and experienced professional resources.   The forum guidelines have been updated to reflect the above.   Regards,   The mod/admin team

Thanks :thumbs:

 

Why does it say 'Google', 'Yahoo' and 'MSM/Bing' in the active members list - are we that popular we're now attracting major search engines?? :unsure:

Sorry, really fussy now, but I can't change the language to English (UK) from English (USA). I don't think it makes much difference unlike English (pirate) which I use for Facebook!!! - Now the forum in pirate - that would be interesting! :ph34r:

Dear All

 

I made a setting change so that all members can now see Web Spiders.

 

Basically these are the engines which create the indexes on all websites so that your search engine can find key words.

Also, I think in the old forum, where is said next to a topic in the i.e. General Forum list 'Last post by (i.e.) Mumble', you used to be able to click on 'Mumble' and it went to that last post, but now it goes to the individual's profile instead - doesn't really matter, will just take some getting used to and there's probably some people now who are wondering why it looks like I've been stalking them!! :lol: :lol:
If you click on the title of the thread instead of the username, it should take you to the first post you haven't read yet.

Tally's tip is probably more useful, but, to be totally pedantic, as you did ask specifically about the last post in a thread, you can get to that by either clicking on the right-pointing arrow or the timestamp in the line above the username. (Hovering over either shows: "View last post" or "Go to last post", so you know you're in the right place.)

 

And, while I'm at it, re: what Tally said (sorry, Tally!! :unsure:), clicking on the thread title will only take you to the first post in the thread, whether you've read it or not. You can only get to the first unread post by clicking on the right-pointing arrow just to the left of the thread title. (Hovering over that arrow shows: "Go to first unread post".) :D

I actually prefer English (US) on Facebook to English (UK). Things just seem to be formatted better, particularly the dates on timestamps. I'd rather have that and deal with the Americanisms than switch to British English. :lol:

If you're in the folder, then yes you're quite right Gordie. But I am right too :) I actually though Mumble meant from the main forum index page. If you click on the title from there, it will take you to the last unread post.
